We had issue with room 839 Heaters first we arrived. It was cold. When we report the issue the person (men) at front desk wasn’t helpful as he came to our room when we complained he stated with a bit rude manner just turn it off!! I was shocked .I said we are from California and not used to cold air, he didn’t offerd heater or changing room. Went down myself ask for maneger and asked for heater. Next dat technicians came and after they left same issue. My sister got sick . We did realize every timecwalk in to room my sister sneeze but out side she was ok. Not sure what was in AC, mold or something else. They didn’t change our room. Other Issue was Internet. Kept dropping and wasn’t able to connect easily. We are not happy about the situation and the was staff didn’t take care of properly. I spoke with Athif Yousf, Rveneue Maneger at the check out . We asked for credit on three nights we had issue, He never get back to me and we are so not happy. We need credit on 3 nights stay, asap. Otherwise we review the hotel and report the problem to BBB.
